Declaration Order

On May 6, 1998, the Minister, with the concurrence of Cabinet, approved the declaration order providing for the removal of Condition D.6 imposed in the earlier approval (O.C. no. 2987/93) of the Lasalle Landfill Site, which restricted the daily tonnage able to be received at the site. As a result of this restriction, the actual annual tonnage received at the facility has consistently been below 60% of the approved capacity. At this rate, the anticipated landfill life expectancy is 15 years. Through the removal of Condition D.6, the landfill site could reach its current maximum approved capacity in less than 15 years and the rehabilitation and re-vegetation of the closed site could be completed at an earlier date with resulting benefits to local residents. The site completed closure in 2002.
